What is it
Peppa Pig’s Holiday is an app which allows children to complete a range of easy-to-play fun holiday themed activities. Each game starts with a mini animation to explain and engage the children.
The games practise a range of skills, such as colour recognition and counting; they also have elements of free choice. Children are rewarded with stickers which they can then use to create postcards (they can also add writing).
Children can visit the airport with Peppa, go to the beach, make a pizza and complete a swimming race.
The app also includes a music video and postcards sticker book.
You can choose different profiles for different children.

What our experts think
Another delightful Peppa Pig app which any little Peppa Pig fans will absolutely love. There was a lot of variety in this app and children practised lots of different skills. We really liked the mini clips at the start of each game these were great for setting the scene.
As well as being fun and allowing for free imaginative play, some of the games had an educational content; we liked the counting and colour matching elements of the airport section.
The instructions for each game were given verbally, meaning children had to concentrate and listen.
It would be even better if...
We would love it if you could play without needing to type in your name at the start – whilst it’s good to allow more than one player this is hard for preschoolers and feels like an unnecessary step.
We would also like to have seen settings under a parent lock.
